Education Secretary William J. Bennett said that large families with incomes of more than $60,000 should do “family planning a little better or find other means” than federal aid to send children to college. Bennett, in a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, defended the Reagan Administration’s proposal to prohibit federal loans to any student whose annual family income tops $60,000. The proposed ceiling on family income for federal college aid recipients is a centerpiece of the Administration’s embattled proposal to cut student assistance by 25%.
